Former member of the goth rock duo, Dead Can Dance, Lisa Gerrard born 12 April, , went on to forge a solo career with her neoclassical goth-pop, drawing on classical composers such as Handel, as well as world music. Hailing from Melbourne, Australia, Gerrard was always surrounded by music, although it was not until meeting Brendan Perry that she had her first foray into a music career.
In addition to singing, she is an instrumentalist for much of her work, most prolifically using the yangqin a Chinese hammered dulcimer. Since her career began in , Gerrard has been involved in a wide range of projects. She received a Golden Globe Award for the music score to the film Gladiator , on which she collaborated with Hans Zimmer. Lisa Gerrard was born in Melbourne to Irish immigrant parents, and grew up in Prahran , an inner suburb with a substantial Greek population. She recalled growing up with " Mediterranean music blaring out of the houses" and said that this influenced her music, particularly on later Dead Can Dance albums and in her solo and collaborative works.
I started dating "A" right after he graduated med school and as he started his residency. LDSdotOrg is mostly propaganda. Reason being - he wants our relationship to be spontaneous like it was before the pre-med things really "kicked in". Having said that, I believe strongly that it takes a special individual who can remain active in the church and have a non-traditional marriage. I would do it all over again and thank my lucky stars that I found this man, that he loves, and that I love him. My experience has been that personal similarities and differences are a bigger element than cultural differences.
